Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: Saddened by vote

    I was saddened when I went to bed on the night Spencer County went from a dry county to a wet county.

    I grew up in Spencer County from the time I was four to about 19 when I graduated, left home and got married. At that time, it was a much different from now. I grew up in a christian home were values were taught. They were taught not only by words, but by example. I was raised in a church and taught to love God and live my life accordingly.

  • LETTER: A difficult issue for the community

    I commend the Magnet for the attention they have given the Wet/Dry vote.   I have been both informed and motivated by what I have read.   I especially commend Brent Schanding for all of his hard work. 

    I would also like to thank Pastor Goodlett for his thoughts.

    I believe the Magnet has gone above and beyond in this special topic in detail, fairness and openness. I hope that we are able to continue to be blessed by this local resource.

  • LETTER: Some have been quick to judge

    I have been thinking about all the publicity lately about our county judge and the views expressed by some of our citizens.

    Often we are influenced by others’ views without knowing all the facts, the people involved or the circumstances. We are quick to judge and express our views before listening to others with an open mind. It is so easy to sit back and pass judgment on others. Sometimes we forget that there may be other opinions different from our own.

  • LETTER: Litter abatement begins October 26

    We are fast approaching the end of 2009, and are preparing to give our county its fall cleansing. We did well with the spring and summer efforts, and, in spite of the weather, the Taylorsville Lake Operation Clean Sweep was successful.

    Because we have had such good cooperation from our groups, we are going to be more selective on which roads need the most tender loving care. Each Magistrate is going to select their most unkempt road and let me know, at the next fiscal court meeting, which road they have chosen.

  • LETTER: Thank you for helping with Ag Day

    On behalf of Spencer County Farm Bureau, I would like to thank each person who worked to make this year’s Ag. Field Day a success.

    First of all, thank you to Peggy Crenshaw for her tireless energy and long hours she put in to coordinate this event.

  • LETTER: Thanks for supporting Cub Scout Pack #177

     

    On behalf of Cub Scout Pack #177, I would like to thank everyone that helped the pack at the Octoberfest. Whether you let us use your barn for the 57’ Chevy, worked the food booth, or simply purchased chili or coffee, thanks to all of you for your support of our pack.

  • LETTER: Humane Society needs more help

    I would like to bring attention to the present situation with the Spencer County Humane Society.

    From what I have learned and to my knowledge, only one person works at the Humane Society on Spears Drive. After multiple attempts over a period of several days trying to reach that person by telephone, website and even driving there, I was unable to contact anyone.

    Are tax dollars being spent for this service? If so, and even if not, someone needs to be there on a regular basis.

  • LETTER: Slow drivers can be hazardous too

    This letter is in regard to a menace on the road. When I leave for work, heading east on KY 44 from Mt. Washington, I encounter, almost every morning, a pickup truck. Now every one seems to think that speed kills. Well, I assure you that driving 20 miles an hour on curvy, hilly roads can also kill.

    I can not count the number of cars and trucks that pass this individual every morning. I cringe when I see yet another automobile or truck pass this person on this dangerous road.
